Black & White & Color

I have always liked a lot of texture in my work. Nothing highlights texture better than a black & white photograph. The problem is, I do paintings and paintings are colorful. Or are they? Many years ago I saw a cartoon where a little boy asked his father why old photographs were black & white. “Didn’t they have color film a long time ago?” he asked. The father replied yes, the problem was that the world was black & white until 1937. So what you see are color pictures of a black & white world. So I decided to do some paintings of a black & white world slowly turning into color.
